    Is it * week for you at all? Have you been drinking water? Have you done a food diary for us to look at? Might just be your body getting used to things and you will see a good loss next week x

    You had a fantastic first week loss... I think that your body has just had a massive shock to it's system and is just re-balancing itself.

    Lots of people who have a great first week loss find that the second weigh in is disappointing in comparison, however, it soon gets back to a normal weight loss routine.

    My body went into shock in the FIRST week and gave me a 1 lb GAIN, however I stuck to plan and got a 5 lb LOSS in my second week.... but then again, my body always has been contrary!!!!

    I'm sorry that my ticker hasn't been changed, that is an old one from when I was on a meal replacement diet.
    I lost 3lb last week x

    If you are expecting your * and gain say 1-2lb of water around then, but have also lost 1-2lbs in weight, the scales don't know the difference and will tell you you have sts. You may have done nothing wrong. You might get a good loss next week when you lose the water again.

    I also think that sometimes you can get a "false low" as well as a false high. Events conspire to show a really good weight loss, but then the next day you can have gone up again (I know this is true because I am a sneaky peeker).

    There are all sorts of things that effect your weight in the short term but as long as the trend is in the right direction over time, that's the main thing.

    I wonder if you're not eating enough? Don't fall into the trap of thinking you need to keep cutting back to lose the weight - you have a reasonable amount to lose, so you might need to be eating a bit more. Have snacks mid morning and mid afternoon to keep your metabolism going. I also note that you are avoiding carbs in most of your dinners - try adding some. On average I guess you are eating less than 1000 cals a day, which just isn't enough.

    Eat more, lose more weight!!

    Well..... To cut a long story short!! This happened to me in Nov and I was pregnant but after 2weeks from finding out I had a miscarriage. The thing is I have a coil fitted and was not planning on having any more babies. So dr said everything is ok, coil still in the right place etc...... But now I am 10 days late. I have just done a test and it cone up positive!!!! (shock) so now don't know what to do!! I still have my coil in. So I may just wait a few weeks and see what happens.

    Lol thanks for the hugs. Thing is I'm not sure I want any more children. I've got 2 girls 9yrs and 6yrs ( on 24th) I've got my life back and we only have a 2 bedroom flat. So many thoughts going around in my head!! Is it meant to be?? Have I got the patients?? Do we have the money?? Etc etc
    Thanks for listening to me waffle on!! X

    Looks to me as though you're not having enough syns. Definitely need to have at least 5 a day. I struggled at the beginning to use my syns if I didn't have a glass of wine lol! Now I tend to have things like olive oil or an extra HEB or HEA.

    Gosh - two conversations going on now...

    Re the weight - just because you're nor hungry it (oddly) still doesn't mean you are eating enough. You can eat 1000 cals a day and feel full if it is all good low cal foods, but it doesn't mean your body has enough to live on.

    Re the pregnancy - congrats, I am sure you will work things out!

    Well that would certainly explain your STS!!!

    I wouldnt wait a few weeks before you go and see your GP though, you need to find out if anything needs to happen with your coil.

    Good luck, whatever you decide to do!
